Early start today for the Easter LDNT spin.
Ever had a wheel bearing failure? You get that metal on metal knocking from the back wheel, and it kinda ruins your day, right.. Seeing as I’ve had a number of ruined days, these days I consider wheel bearings as a consumable, a service item, […]
Another one of the long distance navigation trials, this time starting in Doon. We were greeted early on by wind and hail, but it’s December 29th – it was always going to be a cold one. The terrain was mixed, mostly forestry trails, some road, […]
I got an unexpected week off, so decided to head over to Spain for a few days riding with Redtread. They have a fleet of fresh enough Yamaha WR250Fs which were soft and gentle, but still quick enough to have a bit of fun on. […]
Kilfenora was the starting point and most of today’s waypoints were in or around the Burren. The new xTrainer was brought out for the run today, she has about 10 hours up now, so the suspension is bedding in at this stage. The front end […]
We had a core group of 6 riders, but our group increased as the day went on, as it does. We picked up a couple of neighbours from the campsite just before the night stage, and then three more classic smokers joined us on Saturday […]
The second year of the National Fleadh was coming to an end, and it was time to head away somewhere new. SAS were good enough to put on a twice a week service from Shannon to Stockholm and so it was decided.
After years of loyal service, the past twelve months saw the CRF250X being used as a ‘spare bike’ in the event that the Husky had an issue. More often than not it was used by another rider in our group who’s bike was out of […]
Decided to go on a solo trip around Argentina. Starting and finishing in Buenos Aires, with a stop for a few days snow hiking in Patagonia, El Calafate & Chalten, Laguna de los Tres. And a stop for a few days in the sweltering heat […]
The April edition of the Long Distance Navigation Trials series saw our team of dedicated adventurers go into follow-the-leader mode. Not surprisingly we still managed to find ourselves split from the main group and down some slippery wet mud trail .. fun times :o)
A few of us came down to Cork today in the hopes of a nice trail ride around a well known enduro circuit. We weren’t fully prepared for the snow though, and there were smiles all around as we got ourselves completely engrossed in the […]
So the Husaberg has a fuel pump issue and won’t start. But fear not!! Murph, our fearless handyman has a plan B. The off-road capable, always ready, Honda Cub 90.
Berlin is such a cool city. It just fucking is.
Well.. another year, another Paddy Dakar. This year was a bit of a wash out, or maps were wet, the big ‘berg was having fuel pump problems, there was a broken chain on a CRF, just nothing seemed to be going our way .. so […]
I seen that Philip up at HTM offroad had a low hour used TE300 in. It looked good in the pictures, fresh rebuild w/piston at 55hrs. It was lovely. I had to buy it.
